The temple is not very pretty and this is just one of thousand reclined buddhas that you will see, and it is a strange one (seems to be wearing makeup). There are much nicer places to visit in Myanmar!

It is one of the famous Pagodas in Myanmar. It is known for its enormous 65 meters Long Reclining Buddha Image. A nice place to know a part of Buddha Life.

Big Buddha with many Asian people love visiting here. Thailand and Singapore people are the most. But, the cleanliness of Toilet should be improved.

While it is not a work of art, it is interesting to see this very big reclining Buddha. We enjoyed wandering around it, accompanied by cats, during a rain storm.

Very ornate Temple from the outside with a BIG Reclining Buddha on the inside. One of the biggest I have seen. A little out of the way but worth the trip.
